Be careful what you wish for...Alice Reynolds had always dreamt of escaping her grimy corner of South London for the fairytale world of the privileged aristocratic elite. Cricket whites, Pimms and summer balls were the stuff of Alice's dreams. But when those dreams come true, the friends and enemies she makes on a trip to Russia draw her into a completely different world. Fifteen years later, it's another journey to Russia - this time to procure a priceless Faberge egg for the dangerously sexy Zander Sinclair - which shatters Alice's fragile existence, exposing lethal secrets from the past and throwing her together once again with the one man she could never forget.

ONLY MY DREAMS marks a triumphant return to the big, sexy blockbuster, combining a pacy, compelling thriller with a passionate, unforgettable love story.
From its dramatic opening as Alice, smuggling a Faberge egg back to England, is attacked on a Russian train, to its spectacular conclusion, ONLY MY DREAMS is an unashamedly glossy read. Alice is an irresistible heroine – a rags to riches Cinderella for the twenty-first century – and Cassian, the hero, is nothing short of delicious. Mix in the dangerously sexy Zander, Alice’s lover, and a wonderful hidden secret that leaves Alice fighting for her life, and you’ve got an utterly page-turning, unputdownable treat.About the Author:
